Ooredoo Myanmar has offered support to those affected in the country's 11 national disaster zones following severe seasonal flooding telecompaper.com reported on 10 August.
Additionally, Ooredoo Myanmar has launched a SMS crisis code, "Help Myanmar," which invites customers to donate credit to flood victims. "Help Myanmar" will provide immediate and long-term aid to flood-affected people and regions.
The firm intends to directly distribute food, water, medicine and blankets and assist with the provision of temporary shelter to the communities that it can safely access. For inaccessible regions, the company will make the same donations to local authorities for their distribution.
Ooredoo Myanmar has provided support of over MMK 20 million in two affected states already and is making donations in other flood affected regions of up to USD 170,000.
The Ooredoo Group has pledged to match this donation with an additional USD 200,000 to contribute to reconstruction efforts after flood waters recede.
